    I don't get why you think this board is NOT overclockable? You state that the CPU Voltage cannot be changed. Umm, yes it can.

    I currently am running this board with an AMD 6000+ CPU (3.0 Ghz stock) at 3.35 Ghz at 1.55 volts (1.38 stock). That's an OUTSTANDING overclock for that CPU!

    How did you miss this? Ur slammin a darn good overclocking board for the money.

    P.S., To overclock the voltage, just divide the mVolts you wish to add by 4 and enter that value. So to go from 1.38 to 1.55, you just enter 42.5.

    You are going to melt the power regulators on that board with that CPU and that overclock. 780G boards are the poorest built pieces of crap to ever disgrace AMD. I know this because I own one. You'd be well advised to either back down that OC, switch to a lower wattage CPU or get a motherboard that was designed for overclocking. Unfortunately, AMD neglected to tell the OEM's that these boards should be able to handle 100W+ processors.

    I built the computer a year ago(bought on 05-18-08) and have really just had issues from day one, I had to return my ram (patriot viper dd2 1066) cause the board wouldn't take it so I went out and got corsair ram(8gb) and came here for support and I also went to corsair and asked for help they were a 1000 times more helpful with ideas, none of the ideas got the board to run all 8 gb but still, anyways here is the new issue, my wife was on the internet and just surfing and the screen went black and said no signal on the monitor,
    here is what I have tried so far
    1.new pci vid card
    2.different psu
    3.new psu cord
    4.new HDMI cord
    5.different ram
    6.new HD
    7.unpluged everything from the mobo and left the power and HDMI hooked up and them the regular monitor cable
    It all fires up but the monitor still sits at no signal. NOW I am really FED UP with this the board just rolled over a year and I got this crap going on NOW I bring this to you for help and if someone has any ideas to get it to work then great but if not I garentee that I will never buy or recommoned anyone to buy an ECS product again not worth the head ache
    thanks for any help from the past and for this

    and I have posted twice as you see the two different dates and times there tech service is the WORST tech support I have ever had to deal with.
